This Year’s Films

Our virtual festival is ready to go, starting on January 7, 2022, with a weekly roll-out of about two hours worth of films every Friday for eight weeks.  All screenings are free this year (although donations will be gratefully accepted).  Make sure you like or follow us on Facebook to get notifications about our weekly film releases, or simply return to this website every week. Once released, almost all of our films will be available for viewing until March 6, 2022.  For our Welcome page and general information, click here. For our Film Guide, click here.

Thank you to all our businesses and individuals who have sponsored us in past years!  We are not actively seeking sponsors this year, but we will still have expenses.  If you are able to help, we would definitely appreciate your financial support.  For more information on sponsorships, please click here.  Please see more in the "News" section, below.


Since we are not having an in-person Festival this year, we don't need volunteers this year. But we'd love to have you volunteer for the November, 2022 Festival.  To put your name on our volunteer list, please click here. We'll get in touch with you.  It's fun to volunteer at BWFF, and you get to see free films!  Please see more in "News," below.
